R&R'ing and Stitching

My son and I just returned home from 4 days of R&R'ing in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN. It has been quite some time (maybe 7 years??) since I have visited this area and we had a great time. We visited the Titanic Museum, swam in the pool, relaxed in our hot tub, ate great food - including a trip to Bubba Gumps. Just a great time all around. I did get a little stitching done while I was away and was able to finish up this piece......
This is Bent Creek's Frank 'n Boo Photobooth. It was a fun stitch and my good friend Karen is going to teach me a finishing technique while we are in Indianapolis. Can't wait!!

Well, it's back to work for me so this post is short and sweet. I will try to report back with some photos from our time in Tennessee. Until then......
